Very Sad News

Friday, August 09, 2013

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies just back from vacation, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions .

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone else who may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift.

    I loved the Pillsbury dough boy. Where I worked the tapes of advertising, and lack of taste in dreary music played repeatedly. yet where I heard the Pillsbury dough boy's laugh, hundreds of times all day long it lifted my gloomy attitude. So I mailed away for him. He know is on top of my stove ledge when it's not on. It's my way of having someone happy in my kitchen. I am sadden to hear that he has passed away, and will forever live on my stove in memory of all the joy he brought me at work which sucked. yet I brought joy to many of the miserable people in their daily lives. Thank you for this memory. eva p.s. don't be surprised if I do copy this one day soon.

    Great humor for this morning! And I'm with Woubbie...no more carbs and sugar means we did not contribute to his death!

    Wow. I just realized that I had another reason to be joyful at not eating wheat anymore. No more guilt about eating the Doughboy and his family!

I hope he didn't over dose on yeast. Although he would have risen to the occasion.
